Hello! Could we have for each article published on Atlas a reading time estimated? Many thanks, Tany

As I sat in the developer track classes at LiNC I noticed a familiar expression of the faces of several others who sat around me: excitement and intrigue mixed with a strong look on confusion. Shiny new features... but how do I make it happen!? As one of those wearing that face, I think I know why. Some of us Lithium customers wear A LOT of hats. We're the community manager, moderator, graphic designer, trainer, developer, and many other things. We would love to be able to focus on just one of those things and be a total expert - but that wouldn't be possible. It leaves us an expert in some things, an intermediate in most, and a total newbie in some critical elements.   I think many of us can agree that Studio and all things coding tends to be the most difficult. As evident from the developer track and conversations with several Lithium developers, proficiency in Studio and necessary programming languages is a career all in it's own. I'm fairly sure I'm not the only Lithium customer who often finds themselves sifting through dozens and dozens of Developer Community posts trying to make sense of where this code goes, why, and exactly what am I reading. I'm probably also not the only one who has broken their community so badly in stage they held their breath until a rollback actual loaded correctly. I know we can post in the developer community, but I think we're reluctant to clutter that workspace with how-to questions.   So, I'd like to suggest an intermediate developer community of sorts. I'd love to see more articles aimed at folks who know how to make changes in Studio, but aren't sure how to work with intricate code; articles on how to make some easy refreshes to the appearance of your community (changing color, logos, headers); and intros to how to write Rest API for components. Can we make it happen?
Well done on the new look!   The homepage navigation is much clearer, and the new design feels fresh and true to the brand.Great job!

Hey,   Maybe im, not seeing it "sorry if this is the case" however do we have an area which is easily accessible, searchable and "simple" for people like me where we could code share for common custom components? I see time and time again members asking how you do X and Y and 99% of the time others have done the same with custom components.    Would be great if we could have some sort of a cook book or code exchange where things like this could be hosted here allowing member's to copy/paste and have a dabble themselves in their own stage.    For me, I tend to not have enough knowledge to do something from scratch but could pick and tweak existing stuff to work for my needs and something like "i feel" would help many.    What do ya think?

Hi team! I just wanted to let you know that I am always a little confused about where to post my Lithium related questions. There are a number of boards that my questions could often fall into: Li Discussions Customer Connection Support Forum Strategy Developers (though that one is a bit more clear) What's the difference between these? I know Li Discussions and Strategy are public and the other two are customer-only. And maybe Support Forum is for more specific issues whereas Strategy is more general, and perhaps applicable beyond community to all of CX? In any case, the difference is subtle. If there's any clarification you could provide, I'd be most appreciative! Thanks! - Caroline

Hi,   The documentation for the following API call needs correction. The node_key_type values mentioned here do not work and also there is no mention of query string parameters to be passed for this call. https://community.lithium.com/t5/Devel... See more...
Hi,   The documentation for the following API call needs correction. The node_key_type values mentioned here do not work and also there is no mention of query string parameters to be passed for this call. https://community.lithium.com/t5/Developer-Documentation/bd-p/dev-doc-portal?section=commv1&leaf-id=Community.nodes.type.key.node_type_key.add#Community.nodes.type.key.node_type_key.add   Could someone please update this and save developers' time in trying out different options to get the right result? OR point me to the right documentation please?   Thanks, Srujana.
